Welcome to the Photo Meme Hall of Shame

The honor of first posting ever goes to repeat offender Mr Rich Legg and his entry for the unofficial home of the Photo Meme Slapper®, Photo Friday's theme "Common". Now what do you think of when you think "Common"? "Vulgar", perhaps, or "ordinary", "unrefined", "average". Strangely, the good Mr Legg immediately (and I mean "immediately" because his eager little finger had obviously been hitting the refresh key every few seconds to ensure his usual - "common", indeed- position as number one) thought of his daughter.

Second entry on Photo Friday this week was Mandy. Not being a native of Sydney, Australia, I have to give her the benefit of the doubt and assume that cockatoos are to Australia what sparrows are to the rest of us, and not that this is the first photo that came to hand in an attempt post earlier than Ol' Lightening Finger Legg. Interestingly, the only comment so far on this rather delightful photo is by one Leggnet.

One or two others in the first ten or so postings for Photo Friday are verging on shame-worthiness but we'll give them one more chance to redeem themselves before being Named and Shamed. You have been warned.

Thanks for the comment, just glad I haven't been 'named & shamed' :o)

I hereby vow to post only those pictures which I truly believe fit with the topic. I, too, have noticed tons of off-topic photos posted for various topics, which is a shame because the more entries there are to a contest, the fewer smaller percentage of people are likely to actually view all the entries and vote.

We have sparrows here too, but Cockatoos are the most common Australian native bird.

How cool... On the same night that I find myself as the charter member of the Hall of Shame (an honor which can NEVER be taken away from me), I see that one of my shots made "Editor's Choice" on for the FESTIVITY theme. Thanks for the mention!

Thank you for existing, you are much needed in the blogosphere (eek, use of that word ought to be punishable in-and-of itself).

Where is the Nomination slot?

Dear Caryn, We are even inhibiting ourselves and offending less. We'd be very cranky over tea and scones the next AM should one of us call the other onto the photo-meme-hall-o'-shame-and-riches.

Now if we can just figure out how to inhibit the Photobloggers Viagra and Cialis at

Dear Mr GNet. You are welcome and we expect we will have many more to come. We look forward to dinners full of laughter, happiness, and exploring various uses of expensive flash equipment just as soon as we dare show up on your doorstep. But we do appreciate your comment and are glad that you see this in the fun manner that it is intended. Just keep in mind, WE ARE WATCHING YOU, Mr. Gnet!!

Dear Iron Flatline, It is under our noses and also goes by the name Pie Hole. But feel free to drop us a note should you see and offending post. Or perhaps post one of your OWN! You KNOW you have some!
